NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) DuPont Pioneer is helping unlock potential in both the field and classroom by hosting a live and online auction during the 2017 Farm Progress Show, with all proceeds going to the National FFA Foundation and State FFA Associations. The featured auction item is a fully custom, stainless steel Timpte® grain trailer.
For the past year, Pioneer has sent this Timpte® Super Hopper grain trailer on a nationwide tour of more than 100 industry and field demonstration events as part of its “Unlock Your Yield Tour”. As this tour concludes at the 2017 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, Pioneer will donate the custom-built Qrome grain trailer to the National FFA Foundation for auction. All proceeds from the auction will be used to fulfill the organizations’ mission of making a positive difference in the lives of agriculture students. Held on Thursday, August 31 at 1:00 p.m., the auction will also include supporting items, such as a Commodity Classic VIP trip, Timpte® grain trailer accessories, and a year-long Encirca® Pro subscription.
“Just as DuPont Pioneer unlocks yield potential in crops, we unlock leadership potential in youth,” said Maggie Stith, senior regional director, National FFA Foundation. “DuPont is a long-term supporter of FFA, and we are very pleased with the additional resources to fund programs that will help build our bright young leaders.”
